Secret Folder is like a joke. E.G. Spotlight can be called every secret thing yet.

Very basic, all it does it set the folder a hidden. You can still see the folder and what is in it using the command line or an application like Total Finder. Definitely not good for keeping things private.

I'll join the "it's too expensive" chorus. Cloak is free. Default Folder (a must-have) has Forget Recent Folders.

This command hides a folder. chflags hidden /path/to/yourfolder/ It is completely free. For a password hidden folder, run any of the free DMG creators with a password and then use the above command to hide it.

I have actually used and liked secret folders. I think I even bought it but the price now seems way to steep.

This is ridiculous how could the developer charge money for this... all this does is simply execute a basic UNIX system function, it puts a period in front of a file so that the system treats it as a system file and so renders in invisible. But anyone with RUDIMENTARY UNIX knowledge would know how to sidestep this "Security Measure". The fact that the developer charges for this makes me angry... I bet I could write an applescript that does this exact function in less than 20 MINUTES. I pity the fool that "secures" Bank details and credit card numbers with this.. People these days.. "Sigh"

I basically agree, but the "hacker" would need to know 2 things:

1. That you had done it. Here the presence of Secret Folder might be a give away

2. Where you stashed it, after all it is invisible

Security through stupidity - anybody who thinks that this will make their files secure, and safe from prying eyes deserves to be ripped off for the $19.95 this sorry excuse for a program costs

For users that need more advanced levels for protecting data, there are other ways as protecting information on removable media (as creating encrypted disk images) or using Mac OS X FileVault.
